I always have exciting questions about punctuation, but they’re too small to start a thread for, so I just put standard keyboard punctuation and move on. No longer!
This feels wrong?
Punctuation experts, please, huddle together
edit: just remembered that these forums sometimes standardizes stuff. Swapped for pictures using the snipping tool + paste.
edit 2: this is the script I use to make changing punctuation feasible/worth bothering with at all
edit 3: references: musicbrainz style/miscellaneous | Yurim’s punctuation wiki page | Jacobbrett’s punctuation wiki guide
Isn’t that example in the guidelines? Personally I just copy the ’ from “Don’t Know” on the Tracks page and paste that in when needed. It is such a minefield for those of us a normal keyboard.
I find it is madness. There are at least five different hyphens. I don’t have a clue and leave it to the experts.
Probably, but I couldn’t find it? All I could find was this page.
Check out the script I linked in the OP
For rock ’n roll, just follow the release itself for the number of apostrophes. So if it says
rock n roll, use that, if it says
rock ’n’ roll use two apostrophes etc.
Apostrophes are used to show that parts of a word are not written.
N is short for
and, so logically there should be an apostrophe before and an apostrophe after the
N is not a quote, so it should never be
rock ‘n’ roll.
it looks good to me. Which characters are strange?
Just having both curlys around the n like that, but @mfmeulenbelt has explained it very clearly and it makes sense.
